American nutritionist Samantha Cassetti said that walnuts are a product that helps improve sleep quality.
As the expert explained in a comment to the website wellandgood.com, if you include walnuts in your diet, it will make your sleep stronger and help you to sleep better. She explained that the matter is the special composition of walnuts. For example, they contain the amino acid tryptophan, which is necessary for the body to produce serotonin and melatonin – hormones that are important for the regulation of sleep.
In addition, walnuts contain melatonin itself and magnesium, which promotes deeper sleep, writes NNS. They also contain omega-3 fatty acids, proteins, fiber and antioxidants, which are generally beneficial to the human body.
Thus, thanks to several compounds at once, walnuts help regulate the quality of sleep. It is necessary to eat from 7 to 14 walnuts a day, according to Cassetti.
The nutritionist also called for replacing walnuts with a few less healthy snacks.
In March, Natalia Denisova, researcher of the Federal Research Center for Nutrition and Biotechnology, nutritionist, told about the useful properties of nuts. In particular, she pointed out that according to the WHO recommendations daily nut consumption rate should not exceed 30-50 grams. In particular, this recommendation applies to caloric nuts.
